Spousal Abuse in California

In California, law enforcement is required by law to report any type of suspected spousal abuse or domestic violence. Spousal abuse can be mental, physical, sexual and/or emotional. A spousal abuse charge is either a misdemeanor or felony charge depending on the circumstances, and can carry the following penalties if you are convicted in California:

  • • State prison sentence of up to 4 years
  • • Maximum  $10,000 fine
  • • Mandatory counseling
  • • Community service

Most spousal abuse cases can result in an order of protection or a restraining order issued against you.  These are orders put in force by a judge that state that you must stay away from your spouse.  This would also include any children that you may have together.  If you have been ordered to stay away from your spouse or are facing a spousal abuse charge then it would be in your best interest to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer in California today.
